Praying together forTomorrow
Lent is a wonderful time for reflection, action and going deeper in our faith and understanding of God’s heart for justice. TEAR has commissioned a series of seven prayers, created by different authors and transformed into beautiful artwork that you can share with your church, friends or family. Join in the season of Lent as we explore prayerful responses to poverty in today’s world.

Creator, Counsellor and Healer, Thank you for the vision to stand up and speak out. We pray, Lord, for your constant guidance and direction as we walk for and towards your Kingdom – your tomorrow. Father, grant us courage and wisdom as we the body of Christ accept and fulfil the responsibilities you have given us and let this lead us into your tomorrow.
On earth as it is in heaven.
From the beginning, God gave me a vision about standing up and speaking the truth. Today He is making my voice louder and continually strengthening me to be a voice for the voiceless. We the women at Bir’a Women’s Healing Ministry believe that God’s tomorrow is an abuse-free tomorrow. In order for us to prepare for that we must be willing to connect with our callings and share our grace-filled testimonies that ultimately must bring glory back to God.
Read: 2 Corinthians 1:3-6
At TEAR Australia, the Lenten season in many ways reflects the journeys of our partners and the communities they work in. Whilst we see the pain, the struggle and the challenges of poverty and injustice, we look forward in hope to a better day.
We invite you to prayerfully consider joining this work of restoration and hope by supporting TEAR’s partners to overcome poverty and injustice.
